Coppell, TX (CISD)

WELCOME! In our art room we learn creative ways to think critically about the world around us. Our society moves at the speed of light. A wise man I once knew said, "Creativity is the future." A simple statement yes but one that reverberates truth and logic. We would all agree, our children will be our legacy. Mix the two, and VOILA! They will be unstoppable.

On this site, you will find a variety of things including but not limited to, artwork, art advocacy, updates on school activities, advocacy and yes, more advocacy. Three philosophies I believe in that strongly guide my teaching: 1. Art is inherently cross-curricular, multi-cultural and global. 2. Art educators must continue to advocate the importance of art on a minute-by-minute basis. 3. We are ALL responsible for the educational impact art has on our world. I hope this site continues the initiative taken every day by thousands of passionate art teachers around the globe.

“YAM Flag Design Contest”

We received very exciting news that one of our art students, Alyssa Aguilar, won the STATE Youth Art Month Flag Design Contest to represent Texas nationality. Alyssa represents ALL Middle School students in the state of Texas with her unique flag design.
Youth Art Month (YAM) is an annual observance held each March to emphasize the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school programs.
Each year, state YAM chairpersons hold a student flag design competition. A theme is selected that is representative of the individual state and the spirit of Youth Art Month. This year the theme was, “Art Builds Bridges”.
Alyssa, start making plans to attend the 2015 YAM Awards & Ceremony at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin, Texas on March 22nd!
Alyssa and Mrs. Richards will be honored at the ceremony. Alyssa will receive a certificate for her accomplishment and her flag design will be displayed, celebrated and recreated in the form of a cake at the ceremony.
Thank you to Alyssa Aguilar for helping to make EAST THE BEAST!!!!!
